S: The Hunger Games
FC: The Hunger Games | Setting | Sarah Glass 2nd Hour
1: Katniss Everdeen | This is my scrapbook that I created from Katniss' perspective. It shows the setting throughout the whole novel. It starts with a basic overview of the whole country of Panem and then describes Katniss' district and specific parts of it. It then goes on to describe the Capitol and parts of the Arena. Most of the important locations in the Arena were covered. Specific examples from the novel are included in quotes located on the pages of the locations.
3: Panem rose out of the ashes of what was formerly North America. North America was destroyed in a war along with many natural disasters. There was a controlling Capitol city and thirteen districts in Panem. There was a war within Panem in which the districts rebelled against the Capitol. This time was called the "Dark Days", and it resulted in the destruction of District 13 and the creation of the Treaty of Treason. This Treaty created new laws to guarantee peace between the Districts and the Capitol and also the Hunger Games. | District 1 - Luxury Items District 2 - Mining, stone cutting, production of weapons District 3 - Electronics District 4 - Fish District 5 - Power District 6 - Transportation District 7 - Lumber and paper District 8 - Textiles District 9 - Grain District 10 - Livestock District 11 - Agriculture District 12 - Coal | District Specialization
4: District 12 | District 12 is my home District. I live here along with my Mother and Prim, my younger sister. | "District 12 was in a region known as Appalachia." - pg. 41 | District 12 produces coal for the Capitol. | Coal mined in District 12
5: The Seam | The Seam "is usually crawling with coal miners heading out to the morning shift at this hour. Men and women with hunched shoulders, swollen knuckles, many who have long since stopped trying to scrub the coal dust out of their broken nails, the lines of their sunken faces" - pg. 4 | While the coal miners usually live in the Seam, the mercantile class of District 12 lives in the town. My mother once lived here before she married my father. My father died in a coal mine accident when I was a young child. | Coal miners from the Seam heading to work | A coal mine in District 12
6: The Hob | The Hob is "the black market that operates in an abandoned warehouse that once held coal." - pg. 11. Gale and I sell much of our game from the woods here. | Greasy Sae sells bowls of hot soup in the Hob. | The abandoned warehouse of the Hob | Greasy Sae's kettle | The butcher vendor in the Hob
7: District 12 Woods | "Separating the Meadow from the woods, in fact enclosing all of District 12, is a high chain-link fence topped with barbed-wire loops. In theory, it's supposed to be electrified twenty-four hours a day as a deterrent to the predators that live in the woods - packs of wild dogs, lone cougars, and bears - that used to threaten our streets. But since we're lucky to get two or three hours of electricity in the evenings, it's usually safe to touch." - pg. 4-5 | The bow and arrow that I use while hunting. It's a rarity and crafted by my father. I hide these bows in the woods wrapped up in waterproof covers. | The fence that surrounds the District | I hunt in the woods with Gale. We can find berries, shoot game, and also use traps.
8: The Capitol | "In school, they tell us the Capitol was built in a place once called the Rockies." - pg. 41 | The Rocky mountains
9: "...the magnificence of the glistening buildings in a rainbow of hues that tower into the air, the shiny cars that roll down the wide paved streets, the oddly dressed people with bizarre hair and painted faces who have never missed a meal. All the colors seem artificial, the pinks too deep, the greens too bright, the yellows painful to the eyes, like the flat round disks of hard candy we can never afford to buy at the tiny sweet shop in District 12." - pg. 59 | Effie Trinket is a fair example of the people of the Capitol, from her accent to her hair. She's one of my mentors for the Games. | The Capitol is full of magnificent tall buildings that I've never seen before. There's no way to compare them to anything in District 12. | The food in the Capitol is so exquisite. My favorite is the lamb stew on wild rice.
10: The Cornucopia | The cornucopia is always the site of a huge battle during the Hunger Games. Opponents fight for supplies. I luckily snatched an orange backpack and ran off without being injured. | My bag ended up containing: "One thin black sleeping bag that reflects body heat. A pack of crackers. A pack of dried beef strips. A bottle of iodine. A box of wooden matches. A small coil of wire. A pair of sunglasses. And a half-gallon plastic bottle with a cap for carrying water that's bone dry." - pg. 154 | The Cornucopia | The backpack I grabbed from the Cornucopia
11: "Sixty seconds to take in the ring of tributes all equidistant from the Cornucopia, a giant golden horn shaped like a cone with a curved tail, the mouth of which is at least twenty feet high, spilling over with the things that will give us life here in the arena. Food, containers of water, weapons, medicine, garments, fire starters. Strewn around the Cornucopia are other supplies, their value decreasing the farther they are from the horn. For instance, only a few steps from my feet lays a three-foot square of plastic. Certainly it could be of some use in a downpour. But there in the mouth, I can see a tent pack that would protect from any sort of weather. " - pg. 148
12: The Lake | The lake is one of the few water sources in the Arena. The Gamemakers will probably use this to their advantage to draw the tributes together for a fight. | The Careers "have set up their camp besides the lake. Their supply stash is about thirty yards away. " - pg. 210 | The Career's supply stash | The lake in the Arena
13: The Stream | I found Peeta along the bank of the stream. I almost stepped on him because he was hidden so well! "Forget chucking weights around. Peeta should have gone into his private session with the Gamemakers and painted himself into a tree. Or a boulder. Or a muddy bank full of weeds." - pg. 353 | This stream is one of the few sources of water in the Arena. I use it to clean up Peeta and fill up the two water bottles and water skin. | The stream in the Arena | The mud and leaves that Peeta hid himself in
14: The Tracker Jack's Nest | The nest | A tracker jacker | When I dropped the tracker jacker nest on the Careers below me, I ended up killing Glimmer and the girl from District 4. | Rue was pointing to something above me when I was in a tree. "At first, I have no idea what she's pointing to, but then, about fifteen feet up, I make out the vague shape in the dimming light. But...of what?...Among the familiar evening sounds of the woods, my ears register a low hum. Then I know. It's a wasp nest." - pg. 185
15: The Cave | Now that we moved into the cave, Peeta has received his first gift from Haymitch. "Getting the broth into Peeta takes an hour of coaxing, begging, threatening, and yes, kissing, but finally, sip by sip, he empties the pot." - pg. 262 Now that we're together in the cave we're acting a lot like the star-crossed lovers that Haymitch wanted to see. | The broth Peeta received | I found a small cavelike structure near the river for Peeta and I to make as our base. "I cover the floor of the cave with a layer of pine needles, unroll my sleeping bag, and tuck him into it." - pg. 260 | The cave
